The Stingray Plant (Alocasia stringray)

The Alocasia stingray lives up to it's name - the leaves are Stingray shaped, giving it a curious, almost gothic sort of look. The stems also have lovely subtle mottled markings all the way up. 

The Stingray Plant is one of many varieties of Alocasia. 

Where is the Alocasia stingray plant best suited?

These really are "middle of the ground" plants. They won't tolerate direct sunlight, in fact it can be detrimental to the leaves, and you might see browning and curling as a result. They're also not great in particularly low light levels, and you'll find they will stretch and lean to find light. A fairly bright, indirect light source is ideal.   

What about water and humidity?

The Alocasia stingray like humid conditions, and they make ideal kitchen and bathroom plants. Ensure the soil doesn't fully dry out, and give the whole plant - leaves included - a misting once a week or so.  

How big will my Alocasia stingray grow?

Whilst you rarely see large specimens of this species - more than 60cm or so - they do exist! Some of the international growers have managed heights in excess of 1.5m, so they have the ability to grow rather large given the right conditions. You're unlikely however to see your plant reach more than around 80cm in a standard home, in a standard plant pot.
